121. Willie Geist. 4th of July Special (Rewind). Our V-C Day (Victory over COVID) Is Finally Here. Independence/Independents Day. Morning Joe vs Donald Trump. July 4th in a Pandemic. The Wu-Tang Question. Mount Rushmore Was Infected with The Sickness.

As America emerges from the pandemic and summer begins, we’re sharing some of the best from our archives. MSNBC’s Willie Geist joined Paul at the height of the pandemic on July 3, 2020 in Episode 66. If you’ve never heard this episode, you’re in for a treat. And if you’re a long time listener, you’ll enjoy hearing this gem again. 

From July 3, 2020:

Willie Geist (@WillieGeist) is one of the most beloved leaders in American media. The co-host of Morning Joe and Host of NBC’s TODAY, Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist, and the Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist podcast, is back on Angry Americans for a uniquely candid, extended and fun conversation with his buddy, Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff). Willie was our first every guest on the pod back in Episode 1. And now, he’s finally back to talk about life hosting the show that Trump watches (and attacks) on a regular basis, interviewing newsmakers from his garage, his favorite band, fatherhood in the pandemic, and his love of hip-hop. It’s Willie Geist like you’ve never heard him before–as the master interviewer becomes the interviewee. 

Angry Americans is the freshest and realist breakdown of the news in America–and jumped to the top of the political and news podcast charts worldwide. Paul Rieckhoff takes you into the July 4th holiday with a laid-back, fun, and at times serious, conversation with one of the most influential voices in America. The renowned activist and author also rips through the most important stories shaping the future of our country. Russian bounties paid to kill US troops, Trump’s decision to finally wear a mask, the skyrocketing number of coronavirus cases at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and push to change the names of military bases dedicated to traitorous racists. And presents “Operation Free America”—a strategy to combat Trump. Fresh off news-making appearances on CNN with Chris Cuomo and MSNBC with Ari Melber and shout-outs from Chuck D of Public Enemy, Rieckhoff tears into all of it.

“What all political pods ought to be: fun, engaging, freewheeling, and respectful – even welcoming- of different points of view. I’m a fan.”

That’s what political strategist Paul Begala called Independent Americans,
